Daniel Boulud's Latest, Boulud Sud, Opens Tonight

New, 4 comments

20 West 64th St., Upper West Side
Phone: 212-595-1313
Status: Opens tonight

After previewing his restaurant Boulud Sud and his cafe and takeaway spot Epicerie Boulud to chefs, VIPs, and whoever happened to be walking by West 64th Street last night after the James Beard Awards, Daniel Boulud is ready to open to the public. The cafe, now open, serves up salads, snacks, sandwiches, oysters, cheese, charcuterie, and dessert and offers food to takeaway.

Meanwhile, the main show is the 120 seat restaurant. Here the focus is on Mediterranean flavors, and chef Aaron Chambers is pulling influences from North Africa, Spain, Turkey, Italy, Greece, and parts of France. He's serving a menu split in three parts, so expect some pretty spectacular hummus (if those words are allowed to be paired), and eggplant dips from the vegetarian section, whole lamb and tagine chicken from the meat section, and dishes like sea urchin and crab tartine, stuffed baby squid, and more in the seafood side of the menu. It all goes down in a Boulud-esque subdued room—carpets for the Upper West Side of course—with a long and large open kitchen. As always, send early reports this way.
